Harlem (N.Y.) Archbishop Stepinac four-star point guard Boogie Fland has requested his release from his National Letter of Intent with Kentucky.

He becomes the latest Wildcat signee to look elsewhere following the departure of longtime head coach and now Arkansas skipper John Calipari.

Fland is the No. 19 overall prospect and top-ranked point guard in the 2024 cycle, according to the On3 Industry Ranking, a weighted average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies. He’s also the No. 3 player in New York.

A McDonald’s All-American, Fland pledged to Kentucky on Oct. 20, choosing the SEC powerhouse over Indiana and Alabama. The 6-foot-2, 175-pounder was set to become the latest touted guard to play under Calipari in Lexington, but is instead now set to come back on the board.

Other departures for Kentucky’s 2024 class include Raleigh (N.C.) Word Of God Christian Academy Five-Star Plus+ center Jayden Quaintance, Overtime Elite four-star center Somto Cyril and Riverview (Fla.) Overtime Elite four-star small forward Karter Knox.

Boogie Fland Scouting Summary

“Boogie Fland plays with a New York flair. He has a good handle and is able to shoot the ball from each level. He has deep range off the bounce and will pull up if you give him an inch. He sees the floor well, gets his teammates in evolved, and takes care of the ball, valuing possessions. There is a floater game in there as well, with a one and two dribble pull-up. He will need to continue getting stronger, and he is a solid athlete and has average length. The confidence is sky-high, and the skill set is obvious. He has a comfort playing on the ball or off the ball in a two-guard lineup. Never afraid of the spotlight. Charismatic.”
